Following this week’s Smackdown episode, WWE teased two upcoming singles matches.
U.S. champion Kalisto lost to Ryback in a non-title match on Smackdown. In a post-show backstage interview, Ryback cut a heel promo about being the top guy in company. The interview seemingly played off his recent media interview expressing frustration with his place on the WrestleMania card.
WWE has not officially announced Kalisto vs. Ryback in a U.S. Title re-match, but it’s possible for the Payback PPV.
In a separate post-show interview, Summer Rae talked about being sick of Sasha Banks. Summer said she plans to prove her superiority in the ring, hinting at a future match on Raw, Smackdown, or Payback.
